Tim and Steve have been gone, out in the wilds of a brutal Eastern Oregon winter. But they reunite by the podcast fire to talk over the 2016 NFL season, the fate of their two snake-bitten teams and how the Playoffs will turn out.
Oh, and they pick some games:
Houston, Detroit, Pittsburgh and New York Giants.
Tim and Steve finally broke through last week, going 5-0 against the spread. It came at the perfect time, too, as Steve departed for a trip to Las Vegas to try to keep the mojo working. To do so, both pickers are going against their favorite teams this week. The guys select: Dallas (-3.5), Denver (-4), Philadelphia (+1), New Orleans (-6), and Washington (+2.5). Thanks for listening!
Tim Trainor and Steve Hill have a winning week under their belt, but play to loosen their belt this week with a full slate of Thanksgiving Day games. They had a hard time narrowing their picks, but eventually went with five favorites: Pittsburgh (-8), Baltimore (-4.5), Atlanta (-4), New Orleans (-7) and NY Giants (-7). Thanks everyone for listening and we wish you Happy Thanksgiving!
Tim and Steve struggled last week, going 2-3 against the spread after two late collapses by the Panthers and Chargers. But it’s finally feeling like football weather out there, and the hosts are gearing up for a big winning week.
